More craziness during snow week. Here's some news for next month. (By then the snow should be gone, right?)

"Staying Focused: Researching and Writing the Longer Book Project"
C.M. Mayo to talk about what she learned in writing her novel, The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire and her travel memoir, Miraculous Air, with plenty of Q & A.
To finish the marathon of writing a long book, more than talent, more than free time, more than anything, in fact, a writer needs mental toughness to avoid the myriad distractions, damaging self-talk, frustrations, and sometimes just plain old boredom along the way. C.M. Mayo, a long-time Writers Center workshop leader and author of several books, including a deeply researched travel memoir and, most recently, an epic historical novel based on the true story (and many years of original archival research), offers tips, tricks and more to inspire you to start, stay with, and finish your book. Register for this event here.
Her next workshop at The Writer's Center is Dialogue Intensive Techniques beginning March 7.
